ADS Volt/VAR Optimization (VVO) Working Group


The Volt/VAR Optimization (VVO) Working Group is working in a collective way to educate policymakers and the public on the benefits of VVO and to promote regulatory policies that would contribute to accelerating deployment of VVO technologies by utilities and other grid operators. These benefits include energy conservation, demand response, and grid stability with a focus on managing voltage in the context of distributed generation.
